Nothing says summer like biting into a juicy, sweet, messy mess of peach greatness. Though I was once opposed to the fur, I have learned to embrace it, bite through, and squish on in to the delectable awesomeness of this juicy summer treat. And what better way to enjoy it than a completely raw, dairy-free peach cream pie. This is the ultimate summery no bake dessert!
What you may not have realized is that peaches come by their specialness naturally, as a member of the rose family, and that there are over 700 varieties of peaches grown. There’s an even better reason to enjoy peaches in the sunshine, though: They are rich in super health-promoting flavonoid polyphenolic antioxidants such as lutein, zeaxanthin and ß-cryptoxanthin. Go on — say those five times fast!
These compounds help scavenge the bad guys, the free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS) that play a role in aging us to look like dried up old raisins. I don’t know about you, but I want to rock it like a plump peach, not a withered one (preferably without so much fuzz, but so it goes).
The best way to enjoy a peach is in a swimsuit before diving into a fresh lake, but second best is in this most awesome, decadent-tasting, raw, dairy-free peach cream pie.
That’s right, I said Raw Peach Cream Pie!
This delight is so easy to make, and in the summer months when the kitchen can get steamy, the no-bake benefits help you to keep it cool as a cucumber… or raw peach cream pie.
Dig in, my friends. Dig in.Print
